Baked Spiced Ham Recipe Ingredients

1 whole (10- to 12-pound) cured, smoked, (uncooked) ham
1/4 cup whole cloves
1 cup packed dark-brown sugar
2 cups dry white wine
Additional white wine
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
Parsley sprigs
Fried apple slices

Baked Spiced Ham Recipe Cooking Process

Place ham in a large pot; add cold water to cover. Refrigerate overnight. Drain. Add fresh
water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; skim off any fat. Cover and
simmer 3 hours. Add more water to keep meat covered, if necessary. Remove from heat
and cool in cooking liquid. Preheat oven to 325F (165C). Remove ham from liquid. Trim
excess fat. Place ham on a rack in a baking pan. Stick whole cloves into ham forming a
grid or diamond pattern. Pat on a thin layer of brown sugar. Bake 2 hours. Baste with 2
cups white wine while baking. Place on a warm platter. Skim fat from baking pan.
Deglaze pan by scraping up brownings with additional white wine. Bring to a boil and
cook down until juices make a thick glaze. Whisk in mustard. Brush ham with glaze until
shiny. Garnish with parsley and fried apples. Makes 3 to 4 servings per pound.
Note: To make fried apples, slice whole apples crosswise; do not remove skin or core. Fry
in a small amount of butter until browned on both sides but not cooked through Baked Spiced Ham Recipe .
